it in new york and san francisco and seattle and chicago, all of these places, in the london and paris. we see the try um of the developed world cities. but the success of the city in the developed world is nothing relative to what's happening in the developing world. we've recently reached that halfway point where more than half of humanity now lives in urbanized areas, and it's hard not to think on net that's a good thing because when you compare those countries that are more than 50% urbanized, the more urbanized countries have on average income levels that are five times higher and infant mortality levels that are less than a third. gandhi famously said the growth of a nation depends not on its cities, but on its villages. but with all due respect to the great man, on this one he was completely and utterly wrong. because, in fact, the future of india is not made in villages which is too often remaining mired in the unending rural poverty that has plagued most of humanity throughout almostal of its -- almost all of it existence. it is mumbai, it is delhi, that are the pathways out of po

would object but usually when i was giving a talk in seattle they would say something to the point of progressive activists of course aarsele to the ghazaliya. it's the politicians that are dividing the real conversation today they are the real pros finance people. okay. really? let's look. president barack obama, the number one progressive politicians in america jesus in his inaugural address january 24, 2009 will restore science to its rightful place. that is a lofty goal for a politician. how did he do it? .. >> it lifted the ban, the quote-unquote ban, on federal funding. so today as of the time i put this talk together, about a pont ago, there were 178 embryonic stem cell lines available for federal funding, but there are 760 lines available globally. so he increased it from about 21 lines to 178 lines. most notably, they must be derived, these embryonic stem cells must be derived from leftover invitro fertilization embryos, and permission is required from apartments. that has -- from parents. that has the effect of really limiting the number of embryonic stem cells that you c
in the anti globalization movement since seattle, it's important, to identify the problem has located at the level of the imf, at the level of these g-7 meetings orgy 20 meetings of finance ministers, central bankers, and leaders. and that is where the protesters. and in the book we point out that right after seattle in april 2000, the next big was in washington, the imf meeting. the protesters walked silently past 1500 pennsylvania avenue where the treasury building is located to protest at the imf. and that kind of misses were the real power lies. there is nothing the imf does that the treasury does not allowed to do. treasury is a far more powerful agency in the management of global capital than the imf. and so i think you also need to get our eyes clear on where real power lies than perhaps has been true in the protest movement against globalization in the last 10-15 years. >> i think this is an appropriate place to wrap it up. i think you will be available to sign books and further conversation. so thank you for a stimulating night. >> thank you so much. [applause] >> is there a
for president obama in seattle with it amazing support organization there that shows 23 homeless people looked at medical expenses the year before and the year after. 23 people they saved $1 million of medical expenses because it is far more expensive especially with mental health to leave them on the street this is what the study did not do but it by a that one man who was teaching people about cooking. we have babe backwards way to think that if you are a republican it should be biggest cause it is wasteful government propelled. >> we will make you late so i will off per one thought and give you the last word. would reverse meant i remember saying i like your tie. you took it off and give it to me. i think you offer that your country. you offer your light to those signed letter but those all across the country inspired buy you and the late that you draw us to with hope and optimism i was stumped when an acreage a woman said it is the really as sexy?

, the northwest corridor for us is linking between some pretty rural areas, but between seattle, vancouver, seattle and portland, oregon, and cha-ching oregon, we have some major business markets and the opportunity for travelers who are tourists to enjoy our rail. for us, it wasn't going to work to start from scratch. immediately institute a high speed rail line. we have too many communities linking to that west coast corridor that wanted to enjoy the benefits of rail, and wanted us as a state to his country being and putting our own state dollars into it, they wanted to see the benefits in that incremental fashion. so for us i think washington state will always be a higher speed or at least in the next 20 to 30 years, higher speed passenger rail program, but it works for us and it works for our businesses and our major communities that it links. also i'd like to say that as we work closely with burlington northern santa fe on this notion of sharing the corridor, it's a decision that we made, burlington northern santa fe has bought into it, and the notion for us in the amount of increment
, this legislation helps protect the polar sea and ice breaker based in seattle. it helps clean up tsunami debris hitting the west coast and it analyzes the potential of a tar sands super tanker in our waters off of washington state. in october of this year, i visited vigor shipyards in seattle where our heavy-duty ice breaker fleet is serviced. these sheupts are a debt ceiling at that time -- sheupts -- ships of a testament to america's shipbuilding prowess. they are a critical tool for the united states, for our economic security and national security when it documents arctic. you see the ice breakers mean jobs to washington state and that's why in this final package the importance of these ships, these ice breakers, the polar sea was in danger of being scrapped. there is no denying that we need to build a new icebreaker fleet for the future and for our navy arctic mission. but these specialized vessels will take up to ten years to build. so in the meantime, we want to make sure that u.s. companies can continue to do business and keep the arctic operational and running, and so it's very fitting
magnuson's house in seattle reminisce about their days together, and some of those stories i can share on the floor and some i couldn't. but they were longtime friends. and the one story that is written about in warren magnuson's biography by shelby scates is a story about how the two of them, both appropriators, when mount saint helen's grew up, senator magnuson went to senator inouye and said, we need about a billion dollars for the cleanup of mount saint helen's. if you can manly in 198 -- imagine in 1980 what a tremendous amount of money that was. senator inouye's response was, senator magnuson, we have volcanos blowing up all the time in hawaii and we never get a dime. and senator magnuson's response was, just wait, it will be your turn soon. so these are two individuals that forged a relationship, and along with jackson, were some of the big giants of our day in the united states senate. and we certainly in the state of washington benefited greatly from senator inouye's incredible help and support. i know that he traveled to our state many times at my request and participated in
to canonize her in 2005-2006 there was a young boy, native american in the state of washington, near seattle, and he was playing basketball, and he fell down and hit his lip on the pedestal of the basketball hoop. and he was afflicted with the flesh-eating bacteria. and if you go online, you can either google her name or his name. it's jake finkbonner. they have pictures of him when he was in the throes of this malady. so jake finkbonner had survived. his surgeons were absolutely miraculous in the way they were able to graft skin to cover what had been consumed by the bacteria, and they attributed his survival, his cure to her intersession. so that was verified that supernormal or paranormal occurrences can only come from above. that was in '05 or '06 when he had that malady. and then they decided to canonize her last year, i think it was in december of 2011. and they put it forward on october 21, 2012, was the date of her canonization. a novelized biography is something where you take the facts, and you try to tell a story out of them, and you impute motive, and you try to get a human psych
in l.a. and san francisco and seattle to understand this. that can all be done with someone who has a permanent purpose as a major attraction when the spring break comes in kids come from the eighth grade and will really keep this in their heart. i am going to be certainly talking to you since you are my neighbor. [laughter] about this in terms of this coming fall after the ringling bros. and barnum & bailey circus is over on november the sixth. [laughter] >> the thank you. thank you. i gave you my business card because i know you have some accidental connections with the lord. please pray for the book this week. we gave guidance to the writers. if you had 10 minutes in front of an eighth-grade class, what would you tell them? what would you tell them about leaderships? what did you experience over the last 10 years and how can we use this book to inspire young people to do great things? all those parents and grandparents out there, this is the book of choice. for the teenager, searching, for that young person looking for direction this will inspire them. thank you for the question.
a balance sheet analysis of things, we'll change. i was campaigning for president obama in seattle and was with a amazing supportive housing organization there that showed they had 23 homeless people that they looked at their medical expenses, um, for the year before they came into their supportive housing and the year after. 23 people, they saved their local hospital a million dollars in medical expenses was we all -- because we all know it's far more expensive to leave somebody, especially if they have a mental health issue and other things, it's far more expensive leaving them on the street than to come in and empower them. and this is what the study didn't really do. it talked about medical expenses, but i went to visit some of the residents. i went one man who now was volunteering, who now was teaching people about cooking and making contributions. so we have a backwards way of thinking about this. this is why i think our criminal justice system in america is the most -- if you're a republican, that should b be your biggest cause to go after because it's big, wasteful governme
. he seattle-based investor was an early amazon investor built a bunch of software companies and it just written a book whose title i've forgotten, but will be easily googled full. he makes the point is truly excellent. the reason you have this emotional reaction in the billionaire class and is quite extreme sense of victimization who are doing that badly. he thinks it has do be so central to them to feel not only affluent, but also righteous. particularly since the reagan era there has been this equation of being a successful business person was contributing to the social good and in some ways the size of your bank balance was a measure of your virtue and trickle-down was working. the richer you were, the better person you were. by being rich, european good. i am now quoting hanauer. i don't want to pretend this is man original insight, but it's a good one. he says that's a great because if you're rich and you don't have to feel bad when you see a homeless person, when you can feel like i deserve to be rich because i didn't know that myself. and by the way, and being rich ha
in seattle and went to harvard, he went to oxford, he became an intern in the nixon white house. he became a lawyer and investment banker and budget director under president clinton. for a while people were talking about him as possible treasury secretary. and in may, rains carried on with new policies of jimmy johnson. the clinton administration and iman. in july 1999, secretary cuomo announced fannie and freddie would increase the percentage of their mortgage financing that went too low or moderate income families to 50% in 2001 from 42% that was set back in 1995. these new rules would provide affordable housing for 28.1 million families over the next decade. think about it. cuomo could promise to create 20.1 million homeowners without asking congress to set down a single penny. simply told fannie and freddie to do it. and they said we would be delighted. you remember how jesus said 5,000. cuomo housed twenty-eight.1 million. rains also has ambitious goals for profits. he set a goal of doubling earnings to $6.46 per share within five years and this $6.46 number was taken seriously by his
-2006 there was a young boy, native american in the state of washington up near seattle, and he was playing basketball, and he fell down, and he hit his lip on the pedestal of the basketball hoop. and he was afflicted with the flesh-eating bacteria. and if you go online, you can either google her name or his name, social security jake finkbonner. his name was jake finkbonner. they have pictures of him when he was in the throes of this malady. he had survived. his surgeons were absolutely miraculous in the way they were able to graft his skin to cover what had been consumed by the bacteria x they attribute his survival, his cure to her intersession. and so that was verified to the vatican. they have a battery of physicians and scientists and all that to verify that these are supernormal, paranormal, whatever, occurrences that can only come from above, and they verified that, and then the process is still somewhat slow. that was in '05 or '06 when he had that malady. and then they decided to cananize her last year, i think it was in december of 2011, and they put it forward, and october 21, 2012, was th
for the wall street journal, news day, and up until six months ago i was managing a print shop in seattle, selling business cards to microsoft employees. so i it was kind of a shock to the system, and the term "dark horse" gets used quite a bit in regards to my chances here. but we -- it was an incredible shift towards the positive. i mean, nice to have these dramatic shifts for the better in your life. normally they're -- when something this big happens it's usually for the negative but this time it's very much for the positive. so we were quite pleased. >> what is brownsville like today? >> my experience with it when i went back, it was like so much -- >> saw family there? >> my father still lives there and my grandmother. i made the trip to sort of get the blessings, both literally and figuratively, and it was different. the house we grew up in is no longer there. it's been sold two or three times. graham's house is still intact. still as creepy as ever. and there's a sense of peace there anymore. it's like she is very much living in her late stages of life, and much more calm as a hum

[applause] >> well, good morning, and thank you very much for being here, and this is the wonderful opportunity for me to associate, again, on this monitoring the future report with dr. volkow. and i thank her and actually the great staff that supports dr. johnson and the work that he has done. and the assistant secretary of health, dr. koh, could not be a stronger partner on these health issue, and his words about the health of young people and the responsibility we have as adults for them, i think, are particularly important. and, chris, i'm looking forward to hearing from you. and it's always a great pleasure to be with dr. johnson who has given us the information that helps so much in not only making policy, but also the information that's needed to improve the nation's health and particularly the health of young people. so there are a couple important things i think that i really took from this report, but to put it a little bit into context, remember that this is that snapshot

, and sister, who at the time, was 2 #, we traveled around the country, a big trip. we went to seattle and disneyland which was most important, and we traveled to kansas where my grandmother's family was from, and i went to chicago and went to yellow stone, and we took greyhound busses most of the time, and we rented cars and stayed at local motels or howard johnsons, and if there was a pool at a motel, even if it was tiny, i would be excited, and the ice machine was exciting, and the vending machine, i was really excited about that, but this is at a time when you didn't have 600 stations, 24 # hours worth of cartoons, and so at night, if the tv was on, it was what your parents decided to watch, and my mother, that summer, turnedded on the tv every night during this vacation and watched the watergate hearings. i can't say i understood everything that was being discussed, but i knew the issues were important. i knew they spoke to some basic way about who we were and who we might be as americans. so slowly, during the course of this trip, which lasted about a month, some of this seeped i

a where you change with. today's stephen breyer said after the court decided the seattle and louisville anti-segregation cases overturned those. he said it is not a women want this so if you have quickly so much. and that was even before citizens united, which i think is the defining case so far of the roberts court. but remember, the conservatives of the 60s, 70s, moderate republicans. the core idea of conservatism at the supreme court was judicial restraint. the idea that courts should, if at all possible, do for to the elected branches of government. should not overturn laws lately. the liberals were always trying to overturn laws and he was potter stewart lewis powell and sandra day o'connor preaching judicial constraint. citizens united is the case were just a few years earlier, george w. bush had signed the mccain-feingold law. in two years earlier -- within two, four years earlier the supreme court had affirmed the constitutionality of the mccain-feingold law. but in a story i tell at greater length in the "the oath," the conservative majority converted a relatively minor dispute
